1 Gathering of SBS-USM 70s Our good old days Those of you who have old pictures and want me to upload onto this website …please send the photos to me ….. chriskhteo@gmail.com Some pictures from Wan Portia Don Tapscott: Discovery Learning Is the New Higher Learning Encyclopedias, record labels and publishers were once in the business of producing unique content that generated big revenues. All are being bludgeoned by the digital age that brought abundance, mass participation, democratized production and the rise of a new delivery channel -- the Internet. A similar fate could soon await Canada's universities. On the surface, they may seem in good health. Competition is fierce and lecture halls are packed with young, tech-savvy learners.

Be a Wikipedia Editor From Wired How-To Wiki Let's get one thing out there first: Anybody can edit Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. In that sense, anyone can be a Wikipedia editor.

Last year's theme was about reconnecting business owners with the passion that inspired them to start their businesses. This year's TEDxPugetSound is about the critical importance of innovating to stay competitive and fresh and moving forward. Our theme was inspired by this quote by Anais Nin: "Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living".

Poverty as a Childhood Disease Photo Poverty is an exam room familiar. From Bellevue Hospital in New York to the neighborhood health center in Boston where I used to work, poverty has filtered through many of my interactions with parents and their children. I ask about sleeping arrangements. Mother, father, older child and new baby live in one bedroom that they’re renting in an apartment, worrying that if the baby cries too much, they’ll be asked to leave. I encourage an overweight 9-year-old who loves karate, and his mother says, “We had to stop; too expensive.”

The Role of Questions in Teaching, Thinking and Le One of the reasons that instructors tend to overemphasize "coverage" over "engaged thinking" is that they assume that answers can be taught separate from questions. Indeed, so buried are questions in established instruction that the fact that all assertions — all statements that this or that is so — are implicit answers to questions is virtually never recognized. For example, the statement that water boils at 100 degrees centigrade is an answer to the question "At what temperature centigrade does water boil?"

Social Approaches to Learning Theory Comparison Chart Nardi (1995) compares and contrasts the various social learning theories, which draws attention to the subtle differences between the theories. We have prepared a three column chart that organizes these subtle differences. Our hope is that you will find this chart to be a valuable reference tool for future use (i.e. Thought Question #3) or in other courses.

People calling for reform are in 2 camps: either going back to standardisation of classical languages (including math) or accepting that change has occurred and inventing a new "lingua franca" ie. images worth 1,000 words and video worth 100,000 words. by pauljacobson Dec 18
